    I have a brand new X-Touch Mini and the Editor.  I have setup the layer A for Program Changes on all the buttons.  The editor only allows Momentary actions, which makes sense.

    But I found that buttons 1, 3, 9, & 11 are in toggle mode which mean it lights up and holds the light until released, and it takes two presses to change the state.

    Any suggestion on why this behavior?  Should I be trying it with CC where the options open up for toogle/momentary to force it over?

      I tried what I suggested, and it worked.  I changed the buttons from Program Change to CC and ensured they were setup as Momentary, and dumped it to the layer.  I then reverted back to my previous edit with PC, and they are all Momentary now.


      I would consider this a bug, since the Editor isn't reflecting the full state.  Let me know otherwise.

    Hello All,

    I just want to state upfront I'm a hobbyist and not well schooled in the fine arts of musical recording. 

    Here is my setup info: I have a Mac OSX (MacBook Pro - Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) running Catalina (10.15.3). I'm using Garageband (10.3.4) along with a Behringer UMC202HD 192K. I just putz around and so far this setup works for me as I'm just using it now for the sound effects for my guitar.

    With that being said - here is my problem that I'm hoping somebody has an answer to. I can plug up my guitar to Garageband and everything works, however, after around 3 seconds the guitar input audio drops/cuts-out. I'm not playing loud enough or have enough of an input signal to where it's clipping (and I don't think even if it did clip it would go silent). I'm not well-versed enough (although I am computer technical) to know if this is a noise gate, maybe something with the USB, buffering, or what.

    My input and output are two different sources as I saw some related problem were they thought this could have an impact. I've searched the internet at length and am finding some people that have similar problems but no real solutions.

    Any guideance/support would be appreciated. I do want to start doing some actual recordings but this is driving me nuts.

    Thanks, NG.

    After following all the steps in the manual (set gain,

    etc ).  When I turn on the board, I immediately get feedback

    I have put all XLR lines in the correct inputs and out puts.

    What am I doing

    wrong ????

    Hey there, quick question, anyone have experience with the monitor 1? I'm looking to install it at my venue, just want to know if I can run audio through the xlr and 3.5mm at the same time? I'd like to have my tvs and ipod hooked up, then balance the signal on the devices, or use one or the other without having to unplug.

    Hi All, 

     

    I'm looking at selling an X-Touch and an X-Touch Mini and I'm wondering where a good place would be to sell those?  I've found several sites that operate off of commission and I'd prefer to pass the savings along to the end user vs. paying a commission.  

     

    Any guidance would be appreciated. 

    Ken

    Hi

    Today I've received my first x-touch mini (I'm using a x-touch and two x-touch extenders quite a while).
    After some test I got it working with my software, but there are some points where I would need help:

    • The unit seems not to send any 'Button released' midi messages ( while the x-touch does).
    • Is there a possibility to disable the button -> button LED link inside the x-touch mini? I'm controlling some switches in my software by the x-touch. The app sets the button LEDs according to the current state. When I set the options in the app directly, then the LED buttons reflect the state correctly. When I use the buttons, this does not work correctly, because the LED reacts to the release of the button..

    Regards

    Tomy

      Hi Tomy ( @TomyNeumann ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  What DAW are you using?  Does it have a driver for the mini? Do you have the mini set to MIDI or MC mode?  In MIDI mode, the button behavior is based on the mode set for the individual buttons, whether it be momemtary or toggle.  In both cases, a value of 127 is sent for a press or latch and a 0 is sent for a release or unlatch.  Also, in MIDI mode, the LED state needs to be set/unset with MIDI messages coming from the DAW.  In MC mode, the button behavior and LED state is dictated by the MCU driver in the DAW. 


       


      Hope this helps,


      Ken

      Hi Ken


      Thanks for your reply. I'm using my own app, which creates and handles MIDI. The x-touch mini runs in MIDI mode.
      Your statement is okay for the x-touch extender (and the x-touch full, I assume), but not for the x-touch mini.
      But the x-touch mini behaves different. Even with no midi handling device running, the state of the LEDs changes according to the state of the button.
      Furthermore the button does not send a NoteOn MIDI Message when the button is released.

      Well,


      The button release does not send Note On with velocity 0 but will send Note Off with velocity 0 (opposite to x-touch extender, where it will send Note On with velocity 0 when released).

    Using a new Behringer X-Touch Compact. Issue is the encoder knobs take two full wrist twists to go from 0-127 meaning I have to twist a knob twice to pan from left to right. If we grab a knob to sweep a filter or pan from left to right it's impossible to do it smoothly due ot having to twist the knob twice. It's basically taking twice the time to scan values from 0-127. Is anyone else having this issue? Sweetwater said their other units behave the same way. I cannot imagine an audio engineer putting up with this. Anyone know what's up? How do I make the knob behave normally (meaning a twist from 7 oclock to 5 oclock) ? Hoping to hang onto it. Need insight...

      Hi Jason ( @jsin ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Are you using it with a mixer or with a DAW?  If a DAW, what DAW are you using?  Depending on the DAW, you may be able to increase your step size for the encoders. 


       


      Hope this helps,

      Hey KenMitchell , 


      I'm using with Abelton Live. I tried both MC & Hui mode. Tech support @ Sweetwater said they were experiencing the same issue. I spent two nights trying to find a solution. I've looked up scripts etc. but have never made or edited a custom controller script. Seems like an whole other can of worms. Are you aware of a way to make it work? Many thanks...

    Hi

    I just got my X-Touch this morning, and I love it.
    (First Behringer product too.....I'll get that K2 soon as well =P )

    I'm using FL Studio 20.
    The important parts of the X-Touch are pretty self explanatory, but the function buttons

    on the second row below the screen ( F1 to F8 ) seem to serve no purpose in FL studio.
    However, F1 to F8 on my qwerty keyboard open up different windows in FL such as the mixer, playlist window, piano roll, channel rack etc....
    Is there a way to assign these function keys on the X-touch so that they open the same windows as those function keys on my PC keyboard ??
    Thanks

      Hi @BluMagoo 


      Aside from the different operating modes, nothing on the X-Touch is assignable. It's a clone of a Mackie Control (plus a mode for Behringer/Midas digital mixer control). All your assignments will be made in FL. Look for information and tutorials about FL and Mackie Control.

    I have a Dell Spectre 360 that is a lot faster than my pc for recording. I want to migrate to my laptop. It only has USB 3.1 or thunderbolt or USB type C gen 1.   What do I need to get this done. Suggestions?

      A USB A to B cable for the normal USB port. A USB C to B cable (or USB C to A adapter & normal A - B cable) for USB C. USB 3.1 is backward compatible with USB 2.
